INTRODUCTION The modern age is known as the “Age of Consumers”. In today‟s cut-throat competition the consumer is considered as the “KING” and the main objective of the various organizations are aimed at keeping the consumer happy and satisfied. It is very important for each and every organization to keep its consumers satisfied in order to maintain its competitiveness in the market. However when we take a closer look, we find that the consumers satisfaction level towards a company and its leading products vary on one aspect or the other based on a variety of attributes (Kotler, 2009). Fashion is a highly customer oriented industry with innovative products, where there are large number of competitors giving you a intense competition. Thus companies have to come up with something different and unique keeping the target buyer group and the time factor in mind since in the fashion industry the product life cycle is very short. LEVI’S STRAUSS & CO.: Statistics show that every day millions of customers go for shopping worldwide. Hence every company wants to attract customers and increase their customer base.

With sales in more than 100 countries, the company employs 12,500 people worldwide. Nonetheless, the last six years have seen the company struggling to come out of a slide in sales. Traditional customers have started buying
cheaper or more fashionable clothes. Prices have come under pressure from clothing competitors and from retailers like Tesco buying Levi's product on the “grey market”. Levi's response involved product diversification and brutal trimming.
